Interview with Leydi Morfa

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy to me would have to be seeing people getting emotionally attached to the characters. I feel like I can't write good until I achieve that.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans mean everything to me! Without fans then there is no me.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a romantic short story at the moment. Though next, I'm writing a book on a beauty & the beast type of love story.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are Richelle Mead, who inspired me to start writing, and Rebecca Sky.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that life gets better.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, Catching up on my TV shows, or playing MMORPG games.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do and it was horrible... The plot was everywhere and the characters were so boring. It was such a big disaster that I just threw it out the window and came up with a whole new story.
What is your writing process?
I come up with the main plot and main characters, then summarize everything that will happen, divide it into chapters, and finally start writing.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes! It was Vampire Academy. I loved it and it just gave me the idea to start writing so I did and I still.
How do you approach cover design?
I use a website that gives me the rights to the pictures, then I Photoshop it, and finish!
Describe your desk
Sticky notes everywhere, bookshelves over packed, and folders full of ideas.
When did you first start writing?
When I was in 7th grade.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. Vampire Academy (It is the best vampire book I've ever read)
2. Bloodlines (It's the spinoff of Vampire Academy so I had to read it)
3. Hush, Hush (Fallen angels are just beautiful)
4. The Love Curse (It was the cutest book ever)
5. Thirteen Reasons Why (It left me without words)
